REMINDER – JobKeeper notification requirements
If you have enrolled in the JobKeeper scheme for your employees, you may not be aware of an additional hoop you have to jump through in order to satisfy your reporting obligations.
Employers are required to give written notice to employees within 7 days of submitting their monthly JobKeeper report to the ATO. This is the report that specifies your eligible JobKeeper employees and monthly turnover amounts. You must lodge this report with the ATO in order to obtain the JobKeeper reimbursement.
After submitting your monthly JobKeeper report in relation to April (the first 2 JobKeeper fortnights) you need to write to each employee explaining to them that the ATO has been notified of their eligibility for the first two JobKeeper fortnights.
Going forward, we suggest you include on each employee’s payslip for each pay period something along the lines of the following:
The ATO has/will be notified of your eligibility for the JobKeeper payment in relation to this pay period.
